I love games that allow you to free-roam and this list has by far my favorite open world video games to date.

All of these open world games I've played and everyone has something different to offer.

There's some of the greatest, some of the hidden and a few games you may have forgotten about, either way I did my best to add what I thought was the best open worlds in 2016.

If you have any amazing open world games you'd like to add to the list please use the comments down below.

    am i the only one who really really liked sleeping dogs?

  • Trinity

    METAL GEAR SOLID V, THE WITCHER 3, and DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION... All beautiful open world games that should be mentioned within top 15, but I def like how original the list was, I didn't expect many of the choices. THUMBS UP. And... Skyrim only 10-15 hours..., I just started playing remastered for the first time and I'm just scratching the surface at around 20. I don't even play MGSV a whole lot, (not good at the game mechanics, lol) but still recognize it's mastercrafting. You sound like you would like the SOULS GAMES and BLOODBORNE. Not open world but by far my favorite games ever.


    I can't stop playing Mad Max.

  • Justin R Varga

    Mad Max was brilliant.

  • Faze Koleg

    maybe im crazy ecpecialy with god of war and rdr3 release and the feedback they got... but Mad Max is the best game i EVER played its my all time best game idk it just left some heavy impact on me

  • Dr. Pheel

    Mad max is fun, the story is nice, but the map is hardly noteworthy. It's like, ubisoft quality open world. I mean yes it's detailed and littered with stuff to do, but it's just that - stuff to do. Not interesting stuff. Other than doing missions it's not all that interesting. Don't get me wrong, I love the game, but in my personal opinion it's just not "best open world" quality

  • Any Rebel

    Mad Max is underrated. honestly the only thing that hurt it was the sandbox gameplay that messed with the story. the dialogue and characters and story in mad max was so impressive..especially by video game standards. I even feel like they wasted mad max lore on this game and I really think it deserves a movie. It did feel like something was missing a bit though. Because I had to read character bios to make sense of stuff. They probably did the best they could do with the time and money

  • DIO Oszyi

    What happens to Borderlands?S.T.A.L.K.E.RWitcher 3Metal Gear SolidGothicX3DAY Z ARMAOP FlashpointStar CitizenMafia Dragon AgeBatman AC ZeldaWOWto name a few and just in my opinion Oblivion is far better than Skyrim but year, the TES Series is great!!!

    My favourite setting in a game is assassins creed unity. The French Revolution is a brilliant time to set it in, the architect is amazing and also the civil unrest makes you feel like you're there.
